Gaming and consumer electronics company Interworks Unlimited (Los Angeles, CA) announced the availability of patent-pending UV blue light deflection technology marketed as the Konnet Care Vision Protective Shieldthat protects your eyes from 99.99% of ultraviolet (UV) light emitted from mobile displays. The technology deflects harmful UV and blue that can cause cataracts, myopia (near-sightedness), macular degeneration, headaches, chloasma (skin pigmentation), wrinkles, dry red eyes, and more.

Exclusively distributed by Interworks Unlimited, the Konnet Care Vision Protective Shield has the highest transparency available on the market so there isn’t a visible film on your device; it also provides scratch, drop, and glare protection for devices, including iPhone 5, iPad, Galaxy, and others smartphones and tablets.

Professionals in the fields of light energy and vision have known for years about the hazards that ultraviolet light presents to ocular health. With the prevalence of blue-light LED-backlit displays found in smartphones, tablets and other devices and with consumers using these devices longer and more frequently, scientists are studying the long-term effects and are offering solutions for maintaining ocular health.

"The Vision Protective Shield is far more important than anti-glare, anti-scratch, or even tempered glass, because you can always replace your phone's screen, but you can never replace your eyes," Eric Lu, President, Interworks. "Our shield also reduces glare and is actually softer to the eyes to look at. Even the lighting from my iPhone is not as intense as before."

Children, in particular, are at a high-risk to develop myopia because of the extended use of smart devices in school and at home; in fact, 25% - 50% of children develop Myopia in American and European countries,with up to80% of children from Asian countries developing near-sightedness. To combat this, schools such as Taiwan’s Education and Science (in cooperation with the Ministry of Education) and Hong Kong International School have begun bundling the Vision Protection Shield on tablets used at school, with positive feedback from teachers and children alike.

Vision Protective Shield filters out99.99% of 380-400 nm UVt MAX emitted by the screens of mobile and computer devices; features patent-pending UV Blue Light Deflection Technology; avoids lens mutations and can protect eyes from cataracts, myopia, and other conditions. It is cut to fit different screen sizes and is easily applied to the device; prices range from $19.99 for iPhone-sized devices to $29.99 for 10+ inch tablets, for example.
